Philippines' Performance in Beauty Pageants: 3 winners, 7 runners-up in 2014

Before we move on to the Miss Universe 2014/15 pageant, the 1st major pageant happening this 2015, let's have a recap first of the Philippines' performance in international beauty pageants in 2014.

The Philippines was the top-performing country in 2013 beauty pageants, when Filipino candidates won Miss World, Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Tourism International, Miss Teen Expoworld Universe and Miss Campus World, as well as runner-up placements in Miss Universe, Miss Intercontinental, Mister International, Miss Grand International, Mister Campus World and Mr. Asia Contest.

2014 though wasn't a great year for the Philippines in the beauty pageant scene, especially when compared to its candidates' performances in 2012 and 2013.

But not that bad, either. It won the titles Miss Earth (at home), Miss Heritage and Starz Hunk International, and finished as one of the runners-up in Miss Intercontinental, Miss Tourism International, Miss ASEAN, Miss Global, Mister Model International, Miss Asia Pacific World and Mister Global.

Here are the Philippine candidates who won or placed in various international pageants in the year 2014:
